Subdivisions of Venezuela
Politics of Venezuela
Venezuelais divided into 23 states "(estados)", 1 Capital District "(Distrito Capital)" and the Federal Dependencies "(Dependencias Federales de Ultramar)" that consist of a large number of Venezuelan islands. These are grouped into regions.
Prior to the
Federal War(1859–1863), Venezuela was divided into provinces rather than states. The victorious forces were supposed to grant more autonomy to the individual states, but this was not implemented.
Between 1863 and the early 1900s, there were numerous territorial changes, including the merger and splitting of states. Thereafter, until the late 1990s, the states were left unchanged. Recent years have seen the creation of three new states:
Delta Amacuro, Amazonas, and Vargas (in that order).
